The NHS Long Term Plan, published in 2019, announced the creation of 15 specialist gambling treatment clinics by 2023/24. There are currently 12 clinics in operation, across all regions of England. In July, the National Health Service announced the location of the remaining clinics, all of which are expected to open by the end of 2023. Through these clinics, the NHS will be able to treat up to 3,000 people experiencing gambling-related harms each year.
